If I were a betting man…

While all are focusing on Luke Chueh‘s great new body of work, the real ‘buzz’ behind the scenes is if Thomas Han is going to actually come through and deliver a new body of work. His last “show” was only a few small pieces, that were accompanied by some prints at Copro/Nason a good bit back, and prior to that he had been MIA for a good year. We love Thomas’ work and own many and hope this is a comeback of sorts for him. He was once at the very forefront of the movement, but he’s just been out of the public eye for too long now. Hoping he comes through, but many are saying the new works are a bit too Miss Van (as seen in the image above)… we’ll leave that up to public opinion, but read more on that here.
Be sure to swing through Corey Helford Gallery this Friday to check out Luke’s new body of work and for a trip up to their loft to see if Mr. Han has indeed come through.
